All of these Contents Page are very different to each other yet have the same purpose. They all contain vibrant, eye-catching colours; each being consistent to their colour pallet. By being consistent to their colour pallet, this gives the impression to the audience that they're professional. There are imperatives used in all these Contents, not giving the reader/audience a choice but to go to that page and read it.
At the top of the page there is a bright red banner. This instantaneously attracts the audiences' attention, as the same shade is being used for the 'Q' Magazine it shows that it all belongs to it. Beneath the 'Q' Magazine Logo, is a picture of the Band Members; showing the central attraction of the overall Magazine. Some of their heads cover the 'Q' Magazine Logo, which doesn't matter as this Magazine in particular is famous. Along the right hand side of the page are reviews of a variety of artists. This may suggest that the Magazine is versatile the way in which they review different genres of artists; possibly to encourage people who like these other artists to read this Magazine. The page consists of pictures and main events/gossip. It is constructed in a professional manner and is very consistent. Again, the yellow circle suggests that the information is vital as the colour hasn't been used at all in this page (up until now). At the bottom of the page, there is someone dressed in Indie clothes; which could give away the main genre of this Magazine. The hat covering half of his face could suggest a sense of secrecy or the model could be a timid character.
From analysing these Contents Pages, it has given me ideas that I could incorporate into mine. For example, the ‘Q’ Magazine page has the Band on the top left hand corner (coinciding with The Golden Spiral); which is the first thing that the people will see. They have used vibrant, distinctive colours not allowing the audience to miss it. I like the whole layout of the Page; as it is unique and fulfils the whole meaning of what a Contents Page does.
